Yesterday evening I took a drive over to a local poppy field I'd had my eye on, to see if I could get a few photos at sunrise. I had originally intended to visit a different field, which was full of the things, and curved very nicely across the landscape, but the next time I visited it, it had been completely mown into oblivion. Thanks farmer!
So I took my second choice, and arrived about 8.30 to give me enough time to set up for what I hoped would be the evening performance. The field didn't have as many poppies in it as I'd hoped it would have, nothing like the year before, but I did what a I could, and got a series of images as the sun disappeared for the evening.
|When I arrived the sun was just about to go into hiding behind a bank of clouds.|
|It never did come back out, but it produced a bit of colour in the sky anyway, which was good of it.|
|Some dramatic clouds to round off the evening.|
So it wasn't an ideal spot, but some poppies are better then none I always say.
